Williams played in one game for the Hurricanes as a true freshman, going one for three for 17 yards and rushing for a 1-yard score against Savannah State in early September.
Tate Martell made waves through the college football world this offseason after he announced he would transfer from Ohio State following Justin Fields' arrival. Martell applied for a waiver to be eligible immediately this season, which was granted. It's unknown what his plans are going forward, but according to 247Sports' Andrew Ivins, Martell did not practice on Monday following the announcement.
The Hurricanes open up the 2019 season on August 24 in Orlando against the Florida Gators in what will be the first college football game of the season.
